Tucker Carlson was fired by Fox News.
Now, the world is waiting to find out what’s next for America’s most popular news host.
And Elon Musk just threw out an offer to Tucker Carlson that has Democrats growling.
Wall Street money manager Genevieve Roch-Decter just made a prediction about a massive shift underway in the media industry.
Roch-Decter, the author of the #1 finance newsletter on Substack, weighed in on the recent turmoil in the media industry on Twitter with a major prediction.
“Tucker Carlson leaves Fox. Don Lemon leaves CNN. BuzzFeed News shuts down. NBC Universal CEO steps down. The media landscape is shifting fast. Twitter and Elon Musk are set to become the new frontier,” Roch-Decter pointed out.
Roch-Decter suggested that Musk compete with YouTube—Google’s anti-free speech and pro-censorship video platform—by hiring Carlson as the centerpiece of a new video sharing platform.
“Elon Musk should hire Tucker Carlson and start a video service to compete with YouTube,” Roch-Decter wrote.
Musk countered by pointing out that he’s out to make it possible for Carlson to benefit from using the Twitter platform to post his own content for free, meaning Musk doesn’t have to hire or fire anyone—just allow the marketplace of ideas to thrive.
“Or we don’t hire anyone, but simply enable content creators to prosper on this platform without applying censorship that goes beyond the law,” Musk wrote.
His idea is spot on in an era where independent journalists have been able to leave the shackles of the leftist corporate media world behind and produce quality content they sell direction to their audience using platforms like Substack or Rumble.
Podcaster Joe Rogan is the ultimate example.
His work reaches an average of 11 million listeners per episode—a staggering number that eclipses any news program on cable and legacy broadcast networks.
Megyn Kelly and Bill O’Reilly are examples of major stars in the industry who left Fox News and have built on their careers by launching their own lucrative podcasts.
As their top talent, Tucker Carlson had the 8PM primetime hour on Fox News—the most coveted slot in all of cable news.
But in the end, Carlson may be better positioned for the future.
Americans are slowly transitioning away from cable and moving to streaming platforms.
Incredibly, these days the average age of a Fox News viewer is 68-years-old.
Tucker Carlson was Fox News’ most powerful draw for a younger audience.
Those viewers are almost guaranteed to follow him to whatever platform he chooses to produce content for next—accelerating the inevitable death of the cable news industry.
